Urge Governor Hochul to sign Senate Bill 4254 into law.

Great news! S.4254 has been signed into law! 

Legislation S.4254/A.4075 prohibits insurers from refusing to issue or renew, cancel, or charge or impose an increased premium for certain policies based solely on the breed of dog owned. 

Thank you to all who supported this effort.


Data does not support the industry’s claim that aggressive behavior is present in specific breeds. Ask Gov. Hochul to sign New York Senate Bill S.4254 into law.
